*********** This writer would just like to say, “thank you!” to those of you who have been liking and/or commenting on my posts, while being open-minded about it. Of course, to go beyond the superficial, one goes beyond my photos; we are well aware that many are merely satisfied with the photos; it’s not (fortunately) just about the photos. A lot of what is written here, we know, is way beyond the norm; thank goodness for that! Many of the best scientists have said that reality is likely way different than what we have been lead to believe up to this point… way different than what we can imagine. (That is for sure!) I am very appreciative of those of you who stick with this and continue to read, even though, at times, it must be very difficult to swallow or stomach. I’ve always deeply cared about the truth, no matter how uncomfortable the answers may be, no matter what was revealed. Those who do the same, this movement deeply admires. (Truth is beautiful, and there are real treasures if one is open, independent, passionate, honest, and not afraid to go beyond the primitive, antiquated ways.) Too many of us are like clay that (over time) hardens after it has been molded by (equally desiccated) others. *************
Thinking — as a process — is fractional and sequential. Thinking involves a sequential series of patterns; these patterns are always symbolic, limited, and (unless rare insight occurs, influencing them) merely dependent on banal, past memories and ordinary experiences. Patterns, in a sequence, constitute time; thinking and time are not two separate things. Experiencing, in most minds, is dictated — as to how it takes place and manifests — by implanted, past memories. When, as it does with most people, a learned and supposed static self-image seems to be claiming (from a supposed psychological distance) to have control and be dominant over moving, rearranging, sequential, symbolic thought-patterns that thought/thinking considers such a self-center to have power over via managing and authoritatively manipulating… deception takes place. If the supposed central image is not — in reality — central at all, and if it is merely another one of the images (which it is), then things are not as they appear and there must be a significant paradigm shift; otherwise, all kinds of misbehavior and distortion occurs.
A dominating center that — in reality — is not truly dominating and not, in any way, central… creates a tremendous amount of havoc for the (unfortunate) mind miseducated to contain (and “be”) such an array. The havoc involved manifests as needless inner friction, inner conflict, fabricated space, needless dominancy, false glorification, and needless separation. When one segment claims to be dominant and “in control” of other sections (from a fallacious distance)… inner tyranny, friction, struggle, and pseudo-power-control materialize; these often manifest (outwardly) as conflict, outward dominance, and violence in the external world. Additionally, such a false center inevitably leads to the cultivation selfishness, jealousy, and competition; it fosters inner self-aggrandizement, indifference, and isolation. The supposed center is considered permanent, most important, and lasting, while the other thoughts and feelings are considered subservient, more or less temporary, and as something to be used. Surgeries on the corpus callosum within the brain, resulting in two fields of consciousness, are indicative of the falsity of a permanent center. Yet, psychiatrists and psychologists still promote antiquated methodologies which continue to constrain the mind into practices promoting a fallacious center.
A true and intelligent paradigm shift would transcend these false bonds and conceitful ways. A genuine, beautiful psychological transformation would occur when the mind acts — not merely reacts — as a whole without false separation and delusive, fallacious space. Then, when reflection takes place, one is not something separate from the reflection; then, when compassion occurs, one is not something separate from compassion. Since so many thoughts are fractional, limited symbols… the holistic mind would often intelligently go beyond them; the whole is more than the sum of the parts. In this, no crude, dominating part would exist to stupefy, tyrannize, manipulate, or intervene. In this lack of friction and loss of falsity are bliss and integrity. In such wholeness, wisdom manifests, eternity manifests.
